We invite you to attend "Celebration of Freedom 2012" to be held in downtown Decatur and East Central Community College Bailey football stadium from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm on Saturday November 10, 2012.
The parade, patriotic concert, and Celebration of Freedom 2012 ceremony provide the opportunity to recognize and remember all members of the US Armed Forces whether they are living or deceased, active duty or reserves, serving on the home front or abroad.
The program will include a special recognition for World War II and Korean War Veterans. Their numbers are dwindling and we want to honor them while we still can.
The program will conclude with a balloon release honoring, by name, each member of the US Armed forces that we have received a registration form for. Please send in a form recognizing your friends and family members that serve or have served in the military.
Registration/Balloon Purchase forms are available at most banks, businesses, county offices, schools and town halls. Forms are also accessible online at decaturms.org or by calling Decatur Town hall at 601-635-2761.
Proceeds from the event will benefit MS Veterans Memorial Cemetery and local veterans organizations.
Please join us on November 10, 2012. Let’s fill the stadium with members of the US Armed Forces, their friends and families and fill the sky with balloons in memory and honor of our heroes.
Rush Health Systems proudly sponsors this event in honor of those who have served in the armed forces to help keep our nation free.
